Little Elf says Merry Christmas....

Hi Susan here.....

Today we have a new challenge starting at Aud Sentiments and the theme is 'Ho, Ho, Ho'.....well that says it all doesn't it!!! For full details of the challenge and to see some fabulous creations from the design team call across to Aud Sentiments and join in the fun with us.
Our sponsor for this challenge is...Taylored Expressions

 They are giving the winner a beautiful stamp set called Tweet Hearts.

Now for my card....

I have used backing papers from Bearlymine and a beautiful vintage gold mirri card that I punched a border using a Martha Stewart punch. All the edges of the backing paper have been distressed with gold ink.
The ribbon and pearls are from our local market.

This little cutiepie is one of Marina Neira's designs available from The Stamping Bazaar Store he is called 'Little Elf with Present'. I used Promarkers to colour him in and then gently inked the edge of the topper with gold ink before matting onto a scalloped piece of vintage gold mirri card.

My flowers are a mix from Hobby Craft Store and Wild Orchid Crafts.

My sentiment was made on the computer, cut to shape then edges with gold ink.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my card and for all your wonderful comments, I hope you liked it.
Love Susan
